translated from Spanish: Walker asks Foregoing from Rozas: «It can’t be that a fan goes to watch a football game at the stadium and returns home in a drawer»

The mp of the Christian Democracy, Matías Walker, called for the resignation of the Director General of Carabineros, Mario Rozas, due to the death of a colo Colo fan after being hit by a police vehicle. This, according to the parliamentarian, is just one of the «numerous cases of disproportionate and irrational use of force against absolutely innocent persons by officials of the institution.»
«It can’t be that in our country a fan goes to watch a football game at the stadium and goes home in a drawer,» the DEPUTY said.
The MP added that «there is nothing to justify running over and ending the life of a football fan in that way, even if the vehicle has been stoned. There is an action by Carabineros that persists by disproportionate use of force, and therefore that use of force, besides indeterminate, has to have a sanction, and not only a criminal sanction is sufficient, but there must be responsibilities in the high command of Carabinieri.»
«This could have happened to any of our children going to the stadium, we really have to sit down and reflect on the degree of irrational violence in our country, and just as we condemn the weekend that there was an incendiary attack against a police vehicle in Antofagasta, with Carabinieri personnel inside the vehicle, we have to condemn what this hit-and-run has been in an absolutely irrational way,» he added.
In this regard, Walker explained that «here persists a problem of disproportionate use of force by Carabineros, this has been established in numerous reports, both from the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, of organizations such as Human Right Watch, of The United Nations High Commissioner.»
«Here’s an operational problem, there’s a problem coming from the High Command of Carabinieri. It cannot be that as happened in Piazza Italia, with the failed act of copate by the mayor Felipe Guevara, a carabineros vehicle, a Carabineros truck accelerated, he was able to run over more people still, obviously the classification of the crime , if it is a quasi-crime of homicide, manslaughter is for the guarantee judge to determine. I understand that there is a detention control hearing today, but this cannot continue to happen,»
«Carabineros has to be intervened, we need to prioritize reform to the institution. We concluded this years ago, when we were called up to a security settlement table, with 150 measures. There was the complete restructuring of carabinieri, from the case of carabinieri fraud, of more than 26 billion pesos. But here’s an operational problem, there’s a problem coming from the high command of carabinieri. It cannot be that as happened in Piazza Italia, with the failed act of copate by the mayor Felipe Guevara, a carabineros vehicle, a Carabineros truck accelerated, he was able to run over more people still, obviously the classification of the crime , if it is a quasi-crime of homicide, manslaughter is for the guarantee judge to determine. I understand there’s a detention control hearing today, but this can’t keep happening.»
